About Us

The mission of United Trail Maintainers of California (UTMC) is to protect and preserve access to public lands by maintaining public trails. We strive to foster cooperation and understanding among all user-groups by involving a diverse population of trail users.

We work primarily in the Los Padres, Klamath, Six Rivers, Inyo and Sequoia National Forests nearly every weekend and throughout the summer. We are able to provide trail maintenance services that include using certified crosscut and chainsaw sawyers. We frequently use pack animals in our work and are able to provide pack support to other trail maintenance organizations as well as to government agencies.

There is no membership in our organization. Everyone is welcome to participate and your help is needed and greatly appreciated.

UTMC was formed in 2012 by individuals seeking to organize their efforts. In 2013, we were granted 501c3 public charity status.
